mayfairgrin - This Delicate Confusion [wh151]
"Originally 'This Delicate Confusion' was scheduled to be released on CD in late '06, but -unfortunately- was overshadowed by the completion and release of 'Memoirs From The Deep End' (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/mayfairgrin1). TDC represents a stylistic metamorphasis from the industrial-inspired electronica compositions found on 'Excursions On A Hovercraft' to the darker, more refined, and synth-driven ambient IDM as heard on 'Memoirs'. Tracks like "delicate" and "kirlian sunshine" highlight some deeper and more complex compositions on the record showcasing a more progressive direction. The record as a whole is a cross-section of mayfairgrin's interpretations of various music genres... obscure or otherwise." -- A. Latham

Subject: A hauntingly familiar tune...
My only complaint- some of the songs are a bit long, which is probably intended for the whole trance-state idea, but they seem more like an "extended remix version" than the actual piece.
I'd love to hear 4 minute versions- it would sound incredibly masterful--
Give it a listen-- let it soak in...
You will remember that you have never heard it before- or have you?
Subject: Delicate Space
mayfairgrin go on a journey of abstruse landscapes and they tell their story through interpretive electronic dances and underwater daydreams. They start off with a sonic odyssey located deep within a computer’s walls which slowly slides into trances and meditative states. After 20 minutes, your guide finally greets you and takes you to a spiritual electro-dance. The urge to close your eyes and fall into the recesses of the mind is hard to fight. This journey seems to get lost in its own maze at times, as its sonic interpretations of a myriad of genres start going around in circles.
Andrew Latham and company have certainly made staying up to watch the sunrise a new pastime. This Delicate Confusion is like being in the back room of a club with the door shut tight and only your sweeping subconscious can find the right sounds to go with the beats that seem to find their way through the walls.
